bands, with banners waving- and cheors
ringing from thousands of spectators,
who occupied every possible vantage
on the curb and in the windows along
the line of parade, the assembled Elks
of a dozen states marched through the
streets of Portland yesterday and had
the time of their lives. There must
have boon 200 of them; mostly on
foot, many on horseback and a large
number In automobiles and carriages.
Vhey were garbed in all manner of
fantastic costumes, and presented a

four divisions, the first headed by De
Caprlo's band, was led by Exalted Rul
er Charles E. McDonell and his staff,
and consisted of 600 Portland Elks

The second division kept time to, the

brothers from other states.
lodges in Third Division.
The third division was commanded
by W. J. Riley, with the Third Regi
ment band setting the pace. Those
who marched in this division were 200
members of Astoria lodge, with white
hats and purple shirts, as their distin
guishing uniform. Others who were
marshalled In this division were mem
bers of the lodges at Eugene. Albany,
Roscburg, Ashland and Pendleton.
The fourth section was directed by
E. House, with ithe Pendleton band
playing Its bravest, followed by tho
ladles of the reception committee in
carriages. Baker City lodge also in

lodge on foot.
One of the features of the parade
was a water wagon bearing the in
scription: "We're on the water wagon
now, but wait until we hit the Trail."
Elks Draw Rickshaws.
Perhaps the prettiest things In the
pageant were a dozen rickshaws drawn
l j brother Elks, in each of which rode
a little girl dressed in white. Repre
sentatives of the lodges at Grand
Junction. Colo., and Salt Lake also oc
cupied Important places in the parade.
The Salem delegation In broad
brimmed straw hats of the "harvest
Land" variety, drew much attention.
Each contingent bore distinctive ban
ners bearing devices touching on some
local matter of Interest.
The parade moved at 11:30 o'clock
from the Armory, and its route trav
ersed 30 blocks. More than half an
hour was required for it to -pass a
.given point, and thousands of specta
tors thronged the line of march. It
was the most picturesque parado
ever given here, and was admirably
handled. After It was over, the Elks
adjourned to the Exposition grounds,
where the set events of the day took
place. The day was an ideal, one for
marching and nothing occurred to mar

Came With a Rush.
It was trying hard to rain when the
antlcred herd reached the Exposition
grounds but after they were all there
the weather didn't get much of a chance
and had to content itself all afternoon
with frowning clouds and an occasional
.shower. Such a rush of people as struck
the enlrance shortly after noon has
eeldorc been witnessed in Lewis and
Clark annals. Every turnstile clicked
rapidly, sounding not unlike the drum
ming of a Gatllng gun as the throng
poured in. Between the hours of 12 and
2 o'clock it was estimated that there
wore more than G000 admissions.
To all parts of the Exposition the
Elks and their friends scattered. All
collected, however, under the colon
nades to attend the exercises which
were held at 3 o'clock. The exercises
were to have been held at the Oregon
building, but tnere was not sufficient
shelter on the broad veranda of that
building and as rain was expected
every moment the Colonnades were se
lected and a apeakor's stand hurriedly
constructed and decorated.
Exercises Arc Entertaining:.
The exercises were entertaining and
there was nothing tiresome or ster
eotyped about them. Music made up
most of the programme. There were but
two speakers and neither waxed seri
ous or eloquent. President Goode spoke
In a light vein In welcoming the "Best
People on Earth" to the Fair and said
he wished to turn over the grounds to
them without reservation, a courtesy
that had never before been extended,
having been saved oxprossly for the

Several pieces by the Administration
Band were followed by the singing of
several numbers by Louts Hanvey,
tenor, who was ropeatedly encored. For
a time It appeared a6 if Mr. Hanvey
had an afternoon's Job on his hands.
The Casino Comedy Quartet also sang
several very pretty selection, closing
with "Auld Lang Syne," in the chorus
of which the assemblage was requested
Reception in Oregon Building.
The exercises at an end adjournment
was made to the Oregon State building
where an informal reception was given
In honor of the Elks and ladles. At 5
o'clock this reception was concluded
and a procession was formed for an in
vasion of the land of the clambake.
Over on the Government peninsula
clams and many good things had been
treated to that process which produces
such toothsome morsels and which Is
known as a clambake. Headed by the
band , a thousand or more Elks and
guests inarched across the Bridge of
Nations, where the time was pleasantly
epent until 7 o'clock.
Now. along about this time, some
people would have been thinking about
home when their appetites were van
quished and a delightful six hours had
been spent. But not so with the Elk.
They weri Just commencing. Tholr next
move was to lilt the Trail and the Trail
had not been so hard hit for many a
night before At 9 o'clock special flra
works were displayed for their benefit.
Until a late hour the crowds remained
at tQ.o Fair. Elks' day finally closed
when the "Exposition did.
Two Thousand Visiting Elks.
At least 2000 visiting Elks were In
the city for the day, according to es
timates made by local members. Dele
gations came from Eastern and West
ern Oregon. Astoria, Seattle. Tacoma,
Olympla and other Washington points.
Some came from as far as San Francis
co and intermediate point. From East
ern Oregon the La Grande and Baker
City delegations made a particularly
good showing and received many high
compliments during the day and even
ing 'for trie fine appoarance they made
in Captain Riley's division of the parade.

1ST STAND TRIAL
Forfeiture of Cash Bond Not
Permitted by Court.
TUXEDO CASE TO BE HEARD
McGIInn and Johnson Required to
Appear In Municipal Court on
Charge of Keeping Open
After Closing llours.
Municipal Judge Cameron and Dep
uty City Attorney Fitzgerald spoiled a
neat game of McGIInn & Johnson, pro
prietors of the notorious Tuxedo sa
loon, yesterday morning by declining
to permit them to forfeit ball In the
cum of S25. The case was continued,
and notification wil be sent the defend
ants that they must appear In court ami
stand trial, or suffer a. heavy fine. They
arc charged with keeping their estab
lishment open after hours.
When the case was called, neither
McGllrin or Johnson answered to their
nam os, and a search of the premises
by Bailiff Goltz failed to reveal them.
Three ofher similar cases had been
called, and In each bail of $35 was for
feited. x .
"I don't want to forfeit ball of 525
In the Tuxedo case," remarried Judge
Cameron. "That Is far too small, I
"I thoroughly agree with. Tour
Honor rogardlng the matter," replied
Mr. Fitzgerald. "McGIInn and Johnson
are persistent violators of the law. To
them the law Is nothing, but a thing to
be evaded. They have been here re
peatedly for this offense, and I do nut
propose to permit this case to go by
the forfeiture of any such trifling sum
"I think the case too flagrant to per
mit of ball forfeiture when there Is
but 525 up." said Judge Cameron. "I
think these defendants have been
breaking this law too frequently,
showing an utter disregard for it. and
I am going to mark It continued. Noti
fication will bo sent McGIInn and
Jonnson. and they must appear here."
There are said to be reasons why Mc
GIInn and Johnson were not required
to put up heavier ball by the police.
The complaint against the house was
not signed by Captain Bailey until
August 14, although the alleged vio
lation of law occurred on the morning
of August 4. At the time of dlscovery
of the alleged violation, a man prom
inently identified with city affairs was
present in a rear room, at 2 A. M,
Although the police deny the state
ment. It Is said tnat this man requested
that no arrest be made. No arrest fol
lowed, it Is alleged, until develop
ments made further delay inadvisable.
McGIInn and Johnson have been re-
petaedly fined in the Municipal Court
for violations of the ordlnnnce. and
even now have cases on appeal to the
Circuit Court. It was In their estab
lishment one night recently that sev
eral women. Including some society
folk, were found by the police and re
moved to headquarters. A young girl
was picked up from the floor, too in
toxicated to stand. .
